Subway officials answered the question of whether criminals use keys to enter the train cab and whether they know someone on public transport. The way that the perpetrator got the keys is one factor the public transportation officer investigates.
Civil servants can analyze dozens of incidents since the end of the year, including factors such as brake operation or "surfer" observations, to help determine the actual extent of brake release behavior. They reviewed security pictures and requested riders' pictures and videos.
Officials used the same method each time. A man can surf in the back of a train and enter the cab. He goes inside and pulls on the emergency brake and goes off the track and disappears into the darkness. Two lines and five lines were his most frequent goals.
The result is that not only does the suspect stop the train, but also many more trains are delayed as the worker has to reduce his force to find him when he escapes to the track.
Byford said the perpetrator was not a criminal but a "fool." He said he wants more punishment for those who commit this kind of crime. For the time being, the conviction will be in reckless danger.
"I want to ban them on the subway," Byford said.
According to an internal transport authority incident report obtained by Jalopnik (news website), the train supervisor spotted jumping at least once in the back of the train. But they could not catch him. He was reported to have pulled emergency brakes on three trains for 36 minutes on Tuesday. He also reported to the train conductor, who pointed to him, "an obscene gesture."
